    Any Solutions?

    Any solutions to this problem?

    I have the VIA EPIA CN13000G.

    I tried the CN700_220001m_XP_noTVLargeFont.zip_Logod.zip driver from viaarena but it went into 'no signal' before the driver even finished install.

    I'll try the other drivers this weekend.

    There are no monitors to select from on the display options. Anyone know how to get more listed/installed there?

    Sorry, I am a little confused. What monitors in what list?

    As to solutions, if you can get it to work for a while you may have some luck by changing the cmos battery. To get you up and running, make sure monitor is set to CRT in your bios. Then try booting into VGA mode and then uninstalling the S3 vga drivers. Do NOT reinstall them if prompted while still in VGA mode, also do not let the computer optimize your display(or whatever it calls it) while in VGA mode. Now restart the computer let it go back into windows xp. You can't stop it from installing the S3 drivers in full xp, but that's ok. wait until it is finished, then right click on the little yellow box in the taskbar that says S3 and tell it not to run at start up. Make sure you do this before the computer restarts (it will want to restart after installing the drivers). Once the S3 utility(yellow box) is disabled restart your computer. It should boot up into windows fine. Oh, you may have to do this initially with another monitor, if that is the case you want to put the computer into hibernation, after getting everything working, and swap the monitors while it is in hibernation, otherwise you may have to start all over again.

    This fix only worked for me for about a week or two, and then I would have to fix it all over again. It started happening with more frequency which leads me to believe that the problem was my cmos battery was dead, and anytime the computer lost power the bios reset. I finally got fed up with it and installed a pci video card I had laying around and everything works fine. It looks better too.

    Oh if you have wifi on your computer install vnc whenever you get it up and running. That way if it acts up you should be able to fire up tight vnc and fix the s3 utility from the comfort of your home, rather than have to drag a monitor out to your hot car.

    If this doesn't fix your problem, then there may be something else causing the issue.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the input. I was talking about the list of monitor inf configurations.

    I removed my pc from the car and went back to the bench. I was using a version of Tiny XP Beast that was causing issues in other areas, so I did a clean install of XP pro. This has fixed the problems on the bench, so hopefully it will stay fixed when I move back into the car.

    I also noticed that the S3 app on the toolbar should be set to CRT and LCD for the screen to work.

    I would disable that s3 utility. In my car it would change the output to TV anytime I booted it up with the lilliput attached. The strange thing was nothing was coming out of the svideo output. Like I said, I just got fed up and popped another card in it.

    Did anyone ever find a workable solution to this?

    I've got a Jetway Mobo, when I do not load the Unichrome driver that I'm supposed to I can get the video to come out through my LCD. However, I get the nagging Hardware Wizard thing on bootup everytime. Additionally, there your CarPC cannot hibernate apparently if you're using the stock video driver from Microsoft.

    On the other hand, if I install the unichrome driver, I can hibernate but the LCD loses it's signal after the boot screen (approx. where the welcome screen is would be). It still works when I bring it inside the house and use it on my normal CRT though.

    Anyone find a way to make this work like it should yet?

    I think what's really happening is that the cmos battery is going dead, and the BIOS is reverting to it's default settings. It would explain why it would work for a week or two and then die. I would really recommend getting a video card if you can. You can find an old one cheap, and it eliminates this headache.

    Sorry I can't help more.

    Over range just means the monitor can't handle the resolution. I think the max a Lilliput can handle is 1024x768, but I'm not sure.
    Hey Guys I know this is an old thread, but I was fiddling with the BIOS for my carputer and I accidentally left the settings in LCD (only) where i need the CRT output...I dont have an LCD (I actually thought that my lilliput 7" monitor was LCD...I was wrong)

    Anyway, I cant get a display, so i cant change it back.

    Can someone trace the keystrokes on their bios and post them. maybe i can do it blindly.

    EX. Down,down, pg-down etc.

    Maybe I can get the display back without clearing the CMOS

    I have an Epia-m.

    Thanks
    Keith

    DEL, D D, ENTER, D D D D, ENTER, U*, ENTER, F10, Y, ENTER
    (I have done this blind navigation 100s of times...!)

    D = Down
    Y = The letter Y
    * = press UP 5-6 times to be sure to get to the top of the list.

    (If nothing happens, do the whole procedure again. Sometimes it doesn't work the first time)

    Also, some time ago I had send an email at VIA about this problem and the answer was that,
    If CRT+TV is selected, a TV must always be connected to the MB. Same for LCD+CRT. Otherwise BIOS returns to default (usually LCD only).
